Leaders of Niger Delta Youth in collaboration with Arewa Youth Vanguard, the O’Odua Youth Forum and the Ohanaeze Progress Youth have thrown their weight behind the campaign by the country’s electoral body to ensure that 2015 election is conducted via electronic voting system, adding that it would ensure transparency.
Speaking on behalf of the group in a press conference in Abuja, the National Convener, Com. Solomon Adodo, used the medium to call on all politicians irrespective of party affiliation or political leaning to shun all factors that might destroy the country’s democracy.
He said:”We assure INEC of our utmost support towards using electronic voting in 2015. We also appeal to all political parties, civil society organizations and indeed all Nigerians to join us in pushing for a system that will get rid of thugs, loss of lives, election malpractices and all sorts of malpractices during 2015 general elections.This if done, will also make our elections free, fair and credible.”
“Electronic voting is the surest way for Nigeria to join the league of countries that have washed out electoral fraud, which is the worst form of corruption. It is also the best way to hand over Nigeria’s elections back to Nigerians, instead of having the judiciary determine who wins what contest.”
